John Brant was born in the Mohawk Village (Brantford), the youngest son of the renowned Joseph Brant. He was educated at Ancaster and Niagara, and fought with distinction during the War of 1812. Brant devoted his life to improving the welfare of his people. He initiated the establishment of schools ad from 1828 served as superintendent of the Six Nations, the first native person appointed to that post. Around 1830 his mother Catharine (Ohtowa? kéhson), clan mother of the Turtle Clan Mohawks, chose Brant to succeed Henry Tekarihogen as sachem of the Turtle Clan Mohawks, a position of great influence within the Six Nations Confederacy. Brant died of cholera in 1832.
